3. Zed Williams swapped for Dan Coates
In arguably the biggest trade of the offseason, the Colorado Mammoth sent defenseman and captain Dan Coates to the Georgia Swarm in exchange for Zed Williams and the 24th and 26th pick in the 2020 NLL Draft.
Coates moved to Georgia after spending his first 9 seasons in Colorado. The Swarm will look to Coates to fill the hole left after the aforementioned Jason Noble trade. Coates seems to be fitting in nicely with his current teammates as was already named assistant captain for the coming season.
Williams heads to Colorado following his best professional field season, which saw him MVP honors at the Premier Lacrosse League bubble over the summer. The 3-year vet joins a Mammoth squad that saw a number of roster changes on the offensive side of the ball in the offseason (see #9 and #7).
